Every cricket fan in India is drenched in joy. The young lads of the Under 19 team have made the entire nation proud. The boys have done it, the guys have won the World Cup.
Coach Rahul Dravid and his boys have created history and we congratulate them for this great win. In the finals of World Cup 2019, India has thrashed Australia by 8 wickets.
After reducing Australia to a modest total of just 216, India reached the target swiftly. But today India’s star with the bat was neither Shubhman Gill nor skipper Prithvi Shaw but it was Manjot Kalra who was exceptional on the night of the finals. India reached the target with 8 wickets to spare and 11 overs remaining.
Manjot Kalra, the opener from Delhi played a handsome knock as he hit a century and that was a special one. Manjot Kalra was unbeaten on 101 from 102 deliveries and lead India’s chase. Prithvi Shaw, the skipper scored 29 while Shubman Gill played a little cameo of 31.
But besides Manjot Kalra it was Harvik Desai who played a very vital and unbeaten knock of 47.
As far as Indian bowlers were concerned, Kamlesh Nagarkoti picked up 2 wickets. Ishan Porel also scalped 2 wickets and so did Ankul Roy. Shiva Singh and Shivam Mavi picked up 2 wickets and 1 wicket respectively.
LOVE FROM ACROSS THE BORDER
As the boys lift the cup, the entire cricket fraternity is in awe of the team and their coach Rahul Dravid. Wishes have poured in from across the nation and the boys deserve every bit of it. Wishes poured in from even across the border. Shahid Afridi shared a special message.
Congratulations India, exceptional U19 team, great coach and mentor in Rahul Dravid. Future stars in the making.

Shahid Afridi congratulated team India and also called Rahul Dravid a great coach. It is amazing to see such love pouring for the team from across the border as well. This is one much-appreciated wish despite the fact that India thrashed Pakistan in the semis.
